Donate food | The Welcome Centre

Thanks to the generosity of our community last year we gave out the equivalent of 239,611 meals to people in need. 

We accept donations of most dried, fresh and tinned foods as long as they are unopened and in date. If you want to discuss a donation of surplus stock from your business, please contact [email protected]


Current shortages and Christmas shortages

Please choose from our shortages below which include items for our Christmas packs. 

We do not require certain brands. Please note we would also prefer not to receive donations of Christmas pudding as we do not give products containing alcohol out to our clients.
